Collection: Floral Frogs

In my last post i mentioned that when i was in Georgia me and my parents went antiquing and i got a couple floral frogs.  Well i got a couple more when we got back and i think i might be set on the collection unless i see one that really stands out and is interesting or a pretty glass colored one.  For a long time i would always see these in antique malls and never really knew what they were for.  Then when i actually started working with flowers i got a couple and would use them in arrangements.

The spiky pin needle ones are my favorite to actually use because they hold up the best.
But you have to be careful with them because i have cut myself a few times handling these. 

you can usually find a ton of clear glass frogs...but a lot of times they're flat and wide.  I liked this one because of the dome shape.  We did see one that was a really big dome that i kind of wish i had gotten, but who knows maybe if we go back (in Florida) at Christmas and if it's still there i may get it.  

and there was also a huge green glass frog in Florida that i passed up :( i found this one here in St. Louis.
I had been walking around looking for awhile...picked up a clear glass and a cage frog...and before i could even finish saying "I wish i could find a colored glass one" i spotted this green frog.  My eyes got really big and made a quick run to the table.

So there's 12 total and i think that's a good amount, unless like i said earlier, there's just one that stands out.
Jeremy said that i could probably find a bunch online and even get new ones online too...but it's all about the hunt!!
